Maids' & Maidens' Lace Blouse Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
Knit in smooth stockinette stitch to contrast with the lace texture at the lower edge and sleeve cuffs. A slight flare at the lower edge narrows a bit at the waist; slim sleeves with sleeve caps are set into curved armholes for a classic fit. A small keyhole at the base of the V-neck allows the application of an I-cord detail on the white sailor collar, which is knitted in an Open Leaf Lace pattern.

- too small
- I just paid $5.50 for this beautiful pattern but it only has three sizes, the largest of which is only 38-1/2 in. I know everyone on Downton Abbey is post-WWII skinny but you could have gone to at least 40 inches. Now I'm going to have to do me own adaptation - not something I really wanted to do. Still the lace collar is pretty. (Posted on 12/15/2014)
